* As of the compilation of this gamethread on Friday, we have no idea what the Flyers' lineups really are with the Couturier injury and the Cousins call-up. Consider these a guess. There are a lot of possibilities.

Questions to Answer:

  1. So how does the sans-Couturier forward group hold up, anyways?
  2. Nick Cousins is back with the team. Does he do anything of note?
  3. Seven trips to the penalty kill on Thursday night against Nashville. Seven. They'll do better than that today, yeah?
  4. Shayne Gostisbehere has a point or more in six straight games. That's not really a question, but I think it would be cool if he extended that streak today. Don't you agree?
  5. Henrik Lundqvist: still ugly?

Go Flyers.
